Another quiet day. My power is going to be shut off in a few hours. And I’m at a loss of what to do with myself for the evening. It’ll be back on in the morning. But still. That’s a whole evening without power.
It’s like going back to the dark ages. You don’t realize how much you rely on power these days. I won’t even have access to my Wifi because, power.
I’ve been binge watching The Walking Dead the last few evenings so maybe this is a reminder of what it would feel like without power. Could you imagine? Not ever having power again?
What would you miss the most? I think for me, it would be my computer. Being able to create art and music – and being able to chat with friends and family from around the globe with the click of a button.
It’s pretty amazing when you think about it. So, what will I do for the rest of my evening?
I’ve loaded my up my phone and Ipod with movies and music. Lots of horror movies. Candles will be burning in the background. Maybe this will get me in the right frame of mind for Halloween.
So, for today. I leave you with these thoughts. What would you miss most if the power went out for the last time? For me, it would be access to music, and to be able to create art like this.
I call this one – Crimson and Clover. It went through a lot of phases. I may post earlier versions. I don’t think it’s quite finished yet.
